We know our eComm specialists and users understand the importance of CAN-SPAM and intend to follow it. But sometimes, mistakes can occur that lead to a violation.

Does a contact need to start (or stop) receiving a communication of yours? If your Report or Data Extension is based on a Salesforce Campaign, users can manage Campaign Members and create new Contacts when needed. Those audience changes will be reflected the next time the corresponding Report is sent to or Data Extension is started. It's a great way for users to continually manage small changes to an audience, without involving an eComm specialist.
Want to continually grow an audience you can email via Marketing Cloud? eComm can provide a simple subscription form along with a Salesforce audience that will update automatically with subscribers (thanks to a behind-the-scenes integration).
